I got this recipe from Harold’s aunt. This may seem weird, but it tastes like a berry jelly. I have switched over to Pomona Pectin, but haven’t made it with that pectin yet.
6 large raw beets
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 package powdered pectin
6 cups sugar
Peel raw beets, slice thin. Place in covered pan and cover with at least 5 cups of water, and cook until tender. Drain off and save the liquid. Put the beets aside. You can season them and reheat for a later meal.
Mix 4 cups of the beet juice with the lemon juice and pectin. Bring to a full rolling bowl while stirring. Add sugar, and continue to stir. Bring back to a full rolling boil and boil for 3 minutes, while stirring. Seal in a hot, sterilized jar. Water bath for 10 minutes.
